Hossam Hassan: Managing Al Ahly is an Honour

Posted on May 7, 2015

Hossam Hassan

, former Al Ahly and Zamalek striker, has revealed that he’s ready to be Al Ahly’s head coach if he’s asked to take over from Fathi Mabrouk.

Ittihad of Alexandria’s head coach Hossam Hassan says that he is ready to manage his former club, Al Ahly, if he is asked to do so. Following the sacking of Juan Carlos Garrido, Hossam Hassan revealed that he’s ready to return to his former club whenever he’s asked to.

“I stayed Al Ahly in 1992 to support them with the financial crisis, refusing to join any Spanish or Italian side because of Saleh Selim and Al Ahly fans,” he told Sada El Balad TV.

He stated that the reason behind his love to the Red Devils is that he played for them when he was thirteen.

“The same thing happened with when I left the Jordanian national team to come back to Zamalek. Some people labelled this action as a failure, but it was done out of love for Zamalek,” he added.

Hossam Hassan ended his words asking the Egyptian fans to forget whatever happened from the twins, Hossam and Ibrahim, asking everyone to forget their past when determining their future.

On the other hand, Mahmoud Taher, Al Ahly’s president, mentioned earlier that if Fathi Mabrouk continues to achieve good results, he will continue to lead the team.

It’s well worth mentioning that Fathi Mabrouk was appointed as a caretaker manager following the sacking of Juan Carlos Garrido.
